RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, which, unlike other storage devices like hard disks or DVDs, allows the information to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored within it. Every time an application is launched, it is stored inside the RAM, as it could be accessed considerably faster than if it was read from another media. In terms of the hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web applications can run at the same time on a given web server, especially when they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a significant number of people at the same time. Not like a shared web hosting package in which the resources of a particular account can be flexible and often depend on what other end users consume as well, a VPS provides a guaranteed amount of RAM that can be used at all times. That memory is allotted to one hosting server only and won't be used by other customers even when it's not being used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

The physical memory that you will get with every single VPS server which we offer is guaranteed and will be readily available constantly even if you don't use the whole thing for a long length of time. Every single VPS account features fixed system resources and runs in an isolated container independently from all of the other accounts on the physical machine, so even in case some account starts running out of memory, we shall not assign some of your memory to that account. Also we never distribute the entire physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts set up on it, in order to make sure that it won't ever run out of memory. This way, there shall always be free RAM if you decide to upgrade your package and we ensure the flawless performance of the physical web server.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

If you purchase one of our dedicated server solutions, you shall get a top-notch hosting server with enough RAM to run even several resource-demanding web applications with no effect on the overall efficiency of any of them. Since we test every single hardware component before we use it when we set up a hosting server, we shall make certain that the RAM sticks are not faulty and that the server performs flawlessly. The physical memory you will get will be available all the time, so even in a situation in which you use only a part of it for any period of time, we will not change the configuration. You'll be able to check the hardware, including the amount of RAM you have, inside the billing Control Panel.
